Zimbabwe, dramatic as Africa's natural landscapes are and few
can challenge the sheer scale and intensity of Victoria Falls. Centrepiece to a
Zimbabwe safari and home to just about every safari and adventure activity you
can think. Indeed, many visitors limit their Zimbabwe experience to Victoria
Falls alone. It's perfect for families, honeymooners and adrenalin addicts but
the country has long been one of Southern Africa's great game viewing
destinations and travellers who want to escape the crowds and see classic
African wildlife in remote settings. Blending great national parks with
comfortable safari accommodation and some of the best guiding in Africa,
Zimbabwe offers a comprehensive safari experience.
A tour or safari in Zimbabwe is an excellent way to explore the many delights of this landlocked Southern African country. There are exciting options both within Zimbabwe's borders and those that include Zimbabwe as part of a larger itinerary. Spend a couple of days touring the legendary few sightseeing options:
2) Hwange National Park: Here classic game viewing & bird watching is a must. Hwange is where to go in Zimbabwe for the country's best big game viewing. Located a few hours' drive from Victoria Falls, Hwange is home to the densest concentrations of elephant after Botswana's Chobe National Park and is an excellent destination for Africa's big predators.
3) Mana Pools National Park: It is famous for beautiful wilderness area, canoe safaris. Wild, remote and little-visited Mana Pools lies along the Zambezi River, its forests and floodplains home to large herds of elephant and its rivers overflowing with hippo and crocodile. Best explored on walking trails and canoe safaris, Mana Pools is a genuine wilderness area that delivers an exciting, off-the-beaten-track safari experience.
4) Lake Kariba: Visit this place for a lakeside living & tiger fishing. One of the world’s biggest man-made lakes, Kariba has a magical setting and wonderfully tranquil atmosphere. Flanked by game reserves and private concessions. The waters of the lake attract large numbers of animals both big and small like crocodiles, hippos splash about in the shallows, elephant and antelope and African fish eagles perch on dead tree branches.
5) Zambezi National Park: To the upstream of Victoria Falls lies the Zambezi National Park, a wild and game-rich reserve stretched out along the broad, smooth-flowing Zambezi River. This largely unknown reserve offers fantastic dry-season game viewing without the crowds. Here you can expect large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe but keep an eye out for lion, leopard and even wild dog. The birdlife along the river is superb, and we’d highly recommend a river safari.
